"We have just arrived back after spending two nights at this amazing place. We were bowled over by the accommodation and the warmest of welcomes from Giancario and Sophia even so late at night. Nothing is too much trouble for them even to the point of placing champagne and flowers in our apartment for my wife as it was our 28th Wedding Anniversary. Thank you to you both for making our stay memorable."

Overview

Villa Cassia di Baccano, which offers self-catering accommodation close to the wine-growing Chianti region and the Casentino valley, has panoramic views of its surrounding Tuscan countryside. Set on a hilltop at the foot of the Pratomagno mountain range, this rural resort occupies a traditional red-painted villa and adjacent mill house, which was once part of a working olive oil farm.

It’s well placed for exploring the local area, less than 5 minutes’ drive from the centre of San Giustino Valdarno, and a 30-minute drive from both The Mall designer shopping outlet and Arezzo -- “best known for the magnificent Piero della Francesca frescoes in the church of San Francesco” (Fodor’s). Rapolano Terme, with its natural hot springs, is around 45 minutes’ drive from the resort, whilst “the glorious medieval city” (Rough Guide) of Siena, and Florence, are around an hour's drive away.

A buffet breakfast, along with lunch and dinner, is served in the old mill. The dining room is set beneath the brick vaulted ceilings and features sofas, a library and French doors opening onto the gardens. There is a seasonal outdoor pool, lined with fruit trees, overlooking the surrounding hills, and the staff are on hand to help with vineyard tours, restaurant tips and booking outdoor activities, including hiking and horseback riding.

Apartments are decorated in neutral tones with wooden floors. All have living areas and kitchenettes. Higher tariff rooms have 4-poster beds, terraces, private entrances and fireplaces, whilst family apartments are spread over two floors. Sofabeds are available. Wi-Fi is free.

The food in the restaurant was very good as was the 'wall' wine list. The food was freshly cooked each evening. Breakfast too was a generous spread.

This was a beautiful accommodation. From the moment we arrived we had a great experience. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too difficult for them. We had dinner there each night and it was fantastic. We had to checkout early and they came in early for us to have breakfast. It’s a family run accommodation and they are lovely people. The room we stayed in was beautiful
